Sounding like a spiritual successor to Return of the Vampire Lord, this song serves as a "goodbye" of sorts to the old Nokturnal Mortum, and hints at the new folkier direction that the band would pursue.
It's an excellent track and really makes this EP worth checking out, more so than the other material. Overall, The Taste of Victory's purpose is to serve as a "taste" of what was to come the following year. Nowadays, it doesn't have much of a purpose, and isn't an essential release. I had just finished listening to NeChrist and then I put this in. The first thing that stuck out was the almost identical sound this has to new Graveland material.
Long songs with just 3 or 4 riffs that are drawn out and repeated over and over. Not like Darkthrone or Burzum though. This release is also a lot folkier than their previous albums. The keyboards aren't as present which makes the folk instruments come alive in the mix.
Varggoth's vocals are different from the last few albums, but he sings in the way he did on the first demo Twilightfall, with a very raspy, almost light death growl. The drums use a lot of fast double bass but nothing like Munruthel's drum skills. He is sorely missed in NM. No blast beats at all in this record, so if you're looking for brutal BM with tons of blasts then this isn't for you. I really like that little folk bit at the beginning of Weltanschauung.
It's catchy as hell. The rest of the song is only decent. The New Era of Swords is faster and better. It is catchy, with great folk instruments and Varggoth's vocals aren't bad. Taste of Victory is alright, but too long for me, which wouldn't be a problem but it's also kinda boring too.
It was recorded in and sounds like older NM with solos and the just the overall old school NM feel. Insomnium Heart Like a Grave. Kauan Kaiho. Insomnium Winter's Gate. Be'lakor Vessels. Novembre Ursa. The Voice of Steel.

The scale and richness of the whole music spectre together with flawless professional performance make this record one of the most ambitious and greatest records in history of heathen ideology based metal music.
Both versions of the album differ from each other not only with lyrics, but also with instrumental interludes between the songs. The band signs to famous German No Colours Records. However, due to different circumstances it is pushed back to The new album shows the world barbaric and militant heathen black metal where powerful symphonic arrangements meet the warlike Slavic melodies.
